Per Bastet Publications is delighted to offer this chilling yet somehow positive thriller from microbiologist Diana Catt.
Investigative reporter Lila Kincaid’s world is turned upside down when her oldest friend is murdered and her twelve-year-old godson is hospitalized with injuries sustained in the attack. The tragedy deepens when it becomes apparent that the boy, Mike, is his mother’s murderer. Everyone, including the detective assigned to the case, is at a loss to explain this abrupt and violent change in the boy’s behavior.
Determined to find answers and to prove Mike’s innocence, Lila launches her own investigation, uncovering a pattern of violence that leads her into a deep web of murder, corruption and deceit. Lila finds herself fighting not only for justice for Mike, but for her very life.
We’re delighted to welcome author Janie Franz to the clowder, and proud to bring you her new paranormal mystery:
When a man is found dead near a large boulder in the back country of northern New Mexico, it seems like a simple homicide. A missing body part, cadaver dogs, and old remains turn the investigation toward the bizarre and the chilling.
Two indigenous female lawyers defend the elderly man wrongfully accused of the murder. Their PI, Allen Rodriguez, a young man with strong psychic abilities, joins the investigation as old and evil practices reach out into the present.
Can Allen use his abilities without darkness overwhelming him? Will a deadly hatred from his family’s past turn his younger brother’s manhood ceremony into a tragedy?
Maybe somebody was taking Shakespeare too literally. The first book of Marian Allen’s projected mystery series begins with a hit-and-run. The victim: an assistant district attorney with a vast wealth of people who, at the very least, didn’t mourn his passing.
Juss — Injustice H. Chocolate (named and raised by hippies) — questions the usefulness of her Life Coach work and hires a secretary to prove its importance. Prim and efficient Kerry Dashingly can hardly wait to tell his wife that his latest secretary temp job is in a miniature castle in a neighborhood of Disneyesque architecture. Kerry hasn’t even begun when he gets a call from his hapless cousin, Abby: A man she openly hated is dead, and the police found unspecified evidence in the back of her car. Juss immediate attaches herself to the problem, determined to help, even if it kills her.
Spadena Street is a two-block Storybook Style neighborhood with a past as corporate housing for privileged employees of a now-defunct factory. Some of its mysteries are connected to that past, some are connected to the characters of the people who lived there or live there now. Some are connected only by the networks of the current residents. Some just are.
